Moment Sound

Slava


Moment Sound is a label that is maintained and curated by a few musicians from the city of wind - Chicago. It is an audio story, a journal if you will. A story about this moment - the singularity at the center of the vortex that continuously propels us from the past into the future. Each release is designed to suspend the mad current of time and transport the listener into the world of the moment - where futurism is retro and antiquity is something to be looked forward to, where future and past exist in the present. In this world music is stripped of its immediate contextual baggage down to its essence - its sound - leaving the listener room to create his/her own context whether it be an all-encompassing discourse on aesthetics and culture or a background ambiance to lascivious activities.

Lokua (Joshua Keckner) is a master of melody, texture and mood. Many are yet to experience this musician’s full scope of ability. Lokua’s earlier works consist largely of down-tempo instrumental hip-hop. Recent works branch out to include a large scope of electronic genres with a significant amount of dance material. Lokua’s sound is characterized by the richness and sincerity of its emotional content with even the danciest of tracks retaining a deep, cerebral sophistication. A Chicago...

Yet another Chicago artists with a very unique style of his own, Blackdaylight cooks up a deep dish of trip-hop grooves. Sonically heavy, Black's infusion of gritty vocals and acoustic samples over a sort of 808 purism is cosmic-tribal. It is "deep in the sheets" music - sensual, throbbing and grimy. And while there is certainly a fair amount of "daylight", the larger portion of this album is dark and serious. Imagine yourself standing on a rooftop watching the city burn as...

A Waveplant is a union between different elements that combine to create a singularity with hybrid vigor. Rather than keeping strictly with any genre, Waveplant extends this idea into tracks and scores that share this blend of approach: fresh and forward, human and resonant. The music featured on this release was created by taking fragments of live improvisation sessions, and combining them into new tracks in realtime. In essence, it is an album about using the studio to boil down the best...

The dark wet streets sparkle with reflections of neon signs, break lights and mercury lamps. A pulsating aura emanates from cavernous bars, who's dim atmosphere provides a solace from the harsh reality of daytime life. The drizzle doesn't impede large crowds from lining the sidewalks, and if anything, adds to the overall brilliance by covering everything in a glistening mist. Almost everyone is in costume - bright clothing, futuristic hairstyles, metal chains, spikes, necklaces,...

It has been almost a year and a half since the release of “Trails” most which Lokua spent honing his craft in a suburban basement on the outskirts of Chicago and performing more than weekly in various Chicago venues. At this point, there does not exist a corner of electronic music Lokua has not yet made his own and the release is a reflection of this. A great variety of styles are brought together with a strong and coherent narrative structure and a unique “Lokua sound”. This is a...

These are recordings from the Intimate Ambiance party we hosted at El Dorado. The event turned out to be quite amazing and all together lasted about 12 hours. There were pillows blankets, stuffed animals relaxed people, a mysterious script, a few spills, a missing jacket, bags full of bags, a box of games, a very strange puzzle, stretches, an amazing massage, a record player that plays slow and weird, a waterphone, candles, sleepers, and lots of great ambiance. more here

A debut Moment Sound release "What's a Garo?" It is hard to place Garo's sound. I would be so bold to say he sounds like no one else. Certainly not anyone I know. Imagine 8-bit video game textures combined with electro-pop melodicism and vibrating bass lines borrowed from UK garage and dubstep - that's a Garo. Garo has been playing live electronic music with the help of multiple hardware machines in Chicago for over a decade. He has been creating most of his music to be played live...
